i have owned this product for about 2 years now. after my significant other and i had moved into our first apartment together and began to move our belongings in, my other had some of his thigs stored at his daughters house. the day we moved in she was more than happy to travel the 2 and 1/2 hours it took to get to our place from her home, to bring him his things. one of the things he had stored at her house was his computer. we knew that our printer was old and outdated and that we were going to have to make a purchase for a new one, but to ur surprise his daughter had pirchase a new 4 in one printer for her home office and was willing to surprise us by sending her 842n c hp printer up with oputr computer knowing that we needed one. we have been using it for two years now and have not had a problem with it. the ink color is a great quality and leaves a great finish on the paper. i would definately reccommend this printer for someone just starting out in a home office. for a fast paced office i wouldnt reccomment this printer because i has a tendency to print a little slower than that of other printers but the clear print and quality definately make up for the wait.
